The thing I like about Hubert Green, the PGA champion, is that, like Jack Dempsey used to, he fights out of a crouch. He sets up over the ball like a guy looking for a collar button in the dark, then he takes this lusty swipe at it as if he were cutting beef. I know a million guys who play like that--and they all shoot in the low 100s. Green wins U.S. Opens and PGAs with that 20-handicap lunge.

Hubert Green tied the course record with a nine-under-par 63 at the TPC of Michigan on Friday, taking a three-stroke lead after the second round of the Senior Players Championship at Dearborn, Mich. Hale Irwin, who began the day with a two-stroke lead after setting nine-hole and first-round records, shot a one-over 73 and fell into a three-way tie for second with Howard Twitty and Mike McCullough, who both shot 68.

Cherry Hills, the proud mile-high golf course that players and press called "easy," "Mickey Mouse" and a "pitch-and-putt course" earlier in the week, thumbed its nose at the world's greatest professionals Saturday. There were 31 sub-par rounds over the par-71 course when Doug Tewell set a Cherry Hills-record 64 in Thursday's opening round of the 67th PGA Championship. Saturday, on a magnificent summer day, there were only 6.

Too many nights during the last 10 years, Hubert Green has gone to bed with sore joints after a round of golf, the result of his inability to "hit a ball solid." Sunday night, the ache probably went a little deeper. Green had been sending out some new vibrations recently, shooting 67 and 66 in the first two rounds of the Toshiba Senior Classic to take a one-stroke lead going into Sunday.

Hubert Green's golf game left him a generation ago. One of the game's best players in the 1970s, the '77 U.S. Open was one of 16 tournaments he won during the decade of shag carpet. He won his second major--the PGA Championship--in 1985, but has gone without a victory since then. Nearly 13 years later, Green is poised to end the slump. He shot a five-under-par 66 Saturday to take a one-stroke lead with one round to go at the Toshiba Senior Classic.

Last Thursday, around noon, Hubert Green left the driving range and his preparations for the first round of the PGA to watch Arnold Palmer hit a driver off the first tee at Cherry Hills. "I had to see that, it was history," said Green, who was a promising 13-year-old junior golfer in Alabama when Palmer drove the green on the same 345-yard hole in 1960 to start a charge that won the U. S. Open. "Arnie was my idol then, and I wouldn't have missed this for the world."
